Mass Effect 3


Recommended Posts

Gonna be awesome.



The following description was leaked on EA's store:


Earth is burning. Striking from beyond known space, a race of terrifying machines have begun their destruction of the human race. As Commander Shepard, an Alliance Marine, your only hope for saving mankind is to rally the civilizations of the galaxy and launch one final mission to take back the Earth.

on a somewhat related note for all you annoyed ps3 owners


Having trouble with your game save on the PS3 version of Mass Effect 2? A fix is in the works along with a few other tweaks.


On the BioWare forums, Chris Priestly has posted details of a patch that could be submitted to Sony as soon as tomorrow. It's anybody's guess as to when Sony will release it to the world, but here's what gamers can expect:


Patch Notes

-Fixed a crash related to memory fragmentation. This fix will also resolve the crashing that corrupted Save Games.

-Slightly improved load times and level streaming.

-Added some telemetry to better improve future titles.

-Updated some strings to fix spelling mistakes (Sorry Kaidan!)

-Fixed the picture frame in Shepard’s Cabin to accurately reflect your love interest choices in Mass Effect: Genesis.

-Fixed a rare crash in the PSN version in Shepard’s Cabin.


If you still want to play in the meantime but are fearful of encountering the bug, Priestly offers the following suggestion:


"There is a very simple work around to ensure the freezing and corruption issues are minimized. Simply restart your game every few hours. By shutting down and restarting your game, you will not encounter the corrupted save issue.”


Hmmm, it's not ideal, but at least this is an option.

The Mass Effect series has been all about your own journey as Commander Shepard fighting to save the galaxy, but that could change with the third entry in the series if BioWare adds 4-player co-op missions.


CVG is reporting that an anonymous source has suggested that Mass Effect 3 will feature a “handful" of co-op missions designed to be played over and over again. BioWare co-founder Ray Muzyka also told Eurogamer, "We haven't talked at all about multiplayer in the Mass Effect franchise, but we're exploring multiplayer in all of our games and all of our franchises."


The remarks mirror what executive producer Casey Hudson told us in an interview during our Mass Effect 3 cover story. "As a single-player experience, and just as a world that people want to immerse themselves in and share, we've been trying to think of a way that makes sense for people to experience Mass Effect with their friends. We haven't yet come up with a way to do that, so we don't have anything to announce at this time. But, obviously, multiplayer is something we want to do more of in the future as a company."


Has BioWare finally come up with an idea that works? 4-player co-op missions would be an exciting direction for the series, but how well would players embrace multiplayer in a story driven Action/RPG? We’ll just have to wait and find out.
